Application Security Companies, Providing Vital Security To Online Businesses And Their Networks

Author : Torrid Networks

Internet accessibility is a must for most of the businesses today without which a business shall loose many precious transactions. Many businesses are using websites as their first point of contact. Some businesses integrate their web applications and their internal network and some extend it to help provide their customers with better support. This exposes the company's network to certain threats which are outside of the realms of the network.

These threats try to penetrate into the network and can play havoc with the information which is the lifeline of that particular business. An effective system must be evolved to neutralize these threats. This is what application security companies or IT security companies do.
Such security companies are given the task of handling the network and web applications' security issues. These include penetration testing, code review, network vulnerability testing, etc and suggest methods that can be used to improve the network efficiency as well as making the network or web applications more secure.
Application security companies are experts in the fields of IT security and ensure 100% safety of the networks and web applications.
Companies with the knowledge of application security also provide regular auditing services which require checking the whole network and web applications and other applications for any inconsistencies. If there are any threats that have lain dormant in the network can be identified and then can be got ridden off.
One of the most important services that are provided by the security companies is about the username and password authentication of the website. This is crucial as most of the threats originate here. Any hacker who is trying to infiltrate the network or the web application will start from here. If this point is secured, then, much of the problem can be handled easily.
As new techniques are being developed and hackers are equipping themselves with new ways to infiltrate, a regular check up of the username password and its authentication is needed.

SQL injection is one of the other methods by which hackers hack into a network. By regularly updating or reviewing it many threats can be eliminated.

Code review is another way of testing for inconsistency. Application security companies provide regular code review to improve the network structure and help it perform better.

Application vulnerability and penetration testing are some of the techniques that are used by application security companies. Application penetration involves penetrating or infiltrating into a web application of network. This is done by the IT security company to ensure that the network is working fine and if there is any issue how to solve it.
